I got to see a panel with Terry Jones of Monty Python. Of course I had in my Inquisitor Cosplay!
The crowds were light enough that I got to meet Carol Spinney (Big Bird and Oscar the Grouch). I have to admit, I tested up a bit when I thanked him for installing the love of learning into geberations of children. Not ashamed at that.
I also got to meet John Barrowman and his delightful is yet, Carole. He was a it rushed but gracious. She was hilarious.
Then I met Nichelle Nichols. Since my parents had a Star Trek wedding, that was necessary. She was serene and beautiful.
I grabbed some lunch and headed to the Outlander discussion panel, and enjoyed a great conversation with fans of both the books and the show. We finished off the afternoon with great concerts by Pandora Celtica and Emerald Rose.
DragonCon is a fantastic combo of fans, celebrities, music, art, vendors and unrestrained geegasm. There is nothing else like it. Whether you are a gamer girl, a brown coat, a Trekkie, or a Whovian, it’s an unforgettable experience.
Don’t miss information on Celtic myth and history, as well as practical travel planning tips, and hidden places, in my travel books.
